Taken. Liam Neeson acts on a phone.

Actors need other actors to bounce off. Once you have chemistry, then a natural rhythm comes into play. Think Laurel and Hardy, John Mclance and Zeus in Die Hard 3, All of the Lethal Weapon films, Thelma and Louise, Qui Gon and Obi-Wan. Whilst it was clear that Liam Neeson and Ewan MacGregor hit it off in their film, it was Neeson’s other role that took a bit more skill. He had the difficult job of giving a convincing performance to a mobile phone.

If he’d visited a Vodafone Roscommon company by using https://kingcommunications.ie/vodafone-stores-near-me/roscommon/, he would have been onto a winner in terms of brand and style. The film is Taken, a surprise hit, certainly to Liam Neeson, where his daughter is kidnapped and ransomed, or she will end up in a pretty unsavoury Albanian organised crime ring.

Neeson gives one of the most compelling and terrifying monologues ever given on the phone to someone. He basically says, in a pretty direct way, that he isn’t going to stand for any of this and that he will find the people who’ve done it. When he does find them, it is anybody’s guess as to the damage that Neeson’s character will cause.

It doesn’t seem to have an impact on the Albanians, and they simply reply “Good luck”. It’s a comment they later regret as Neeson’s Bryan Mills, being an ex-Special Forces and CIA man, is more than equipped to find them and do exactly what he says he is going to do.
